Winter has been in season for the past few weeks, and with the cold snap covering the entire east coast, it feels like Maryland has become the Arctic Circle. We don’t blame you if you don’t feel like venturing into the night outside your Potomac home. But for the rare times you do, some landscape pathway lights could come in handy.
Are you interested in buying some landscape pathway lights? In that case, it’ll interest you to know that they’re easy to install. You’ll need a plug known as a GFCI outlet, but this outlet can provide constant electricity to your outdoor lights. Be sure to take good care of these lights with all of the ice and snow covering the ground. What can you expect from wired landscape pathway lights?
- They won’t fail: Once you have these lights set up, they’ll continue running for as long as you need them to; solar-powered lights won’t work as well when there is no sunlight. In the winter, sunlight is hard to come by, especially given the short days and cloudy weather that is all too common this time of year.
- New lights: One of the most significant advantages of using low-voltage outdoor lighting is how easily you can change the lights when old ones stop working. Older and more outdated fixtures can be replaced by newer and more efficient ones, and you add even more lights as you wish.
- Many bonus features: Are you planning on traveling? Getting away from the cold is an excellent idea during the doldrums of January. You can attach sensors to your transformers that will switch the lights on and off depending on how much natural light they detect. Sometimes you can even find specific models of these lights with built-in timers that you can set for times you are away from home or just don’t want to have to deal with them manually.
The Right Transformer
Take a closer look at the transformer providing power to your outdoor lights. You’ll need to find the wattage rating because this score tells you what lights you can attach to the transformer, and how many of those lights you can use. You can always connect more lights if you like, switch their current positions, and use off-brand lights as long as you are sure they will work.
